PUBLIC CONSULTATION IN BROSSARD
The Réseau de transport de Longueuil wants to hear from users about ways to improve its services
Longueuil, June 3, 2019 – The Réseau de transport de Longueuil (RTL) is preparing to review its service offer and wants to hear from users about their needs and priorities. A public consultation will be held on Monday, June 17, 2019, at 7 p.m., at the Centre socioculturel Alphonse Lepage.
“Given the arrival of the Réseau express métropolitain (REM), the RTL will conduct a comprehensive review of its network, including the one in Brossard. We want to take this opportunity to improve our services and better meet the needs of our users. We’re confident that we’ll be able to do this by being transparent with users and receptive to their concerns, and by making citizens our top priority,” stated Pierre Brodeur, Chairman of the RTL Board of Directors.
The consultation, which is open to all, will be an ideal forum for citizens to express their needs and wants in terms of mobility. During various workshops, participants will have the opportunity to discuss their mobility requirements, determine their preferences when it comes to public transit, and share their expectations about the impending arrival of the REM. At the conclusion of the event, they will also have a better understanding of the factors involved in the RTL’s decision-making process.
“The implementation of the REM in 2021 will lead to a reconfiguration of the RTL’s services. In keeping with the Vision 2025 en transport en commun presented in 2018 by the five mayors of the Agglomération de Longueuil, we want to make the REM a success. The RTL also wants to adapt its network to the vision held by the city of Brossard, which is centred on sustainable development, active and collective mobility, and the creation of quality living environments,” stated Michel Veilleux, Executive Director of the RTL.
Citizens can register for the public consultation by emailing Consultations@rtl-longueuil.qc.ca or on the online form. Those who are unable to attend the public consultation can weigh in online at www.rtl-longueuil.qc.ca/consultationpublique as of June 17.
